Bread tank appears in Rio de Janeiro


A bread tank has been installed in Rio de Janeiro in order to raise awareness of the fight against poverty.

It also aims to highlight the need for funding to tackle poverty in Brazil, as opposed to funding military operations.

The tank has appeared during Pope Francis' visit to the city, as campaigners believe he will be supportive of their cause.
